WASHINGTON, Dec. 14.-A new
farm relief bill in last year's gown
altered to fit this season's demands
appeared in the Senate today, but a
controversy over whose name is to
grace it prevented its introduction in
the House.
The measure, embodying the essen-
tial features of the Nary-Haugen
bill, but shorn of most of its objection-
able provisions, was offered by Sen-
ator McNary, Republican, Oregon,
father of the bill which has weathered
two years ofa tormy wrangling,eand
the new chairman of the Senate
agricultural committee.
A companion bill was turned over
to Representative Turnell, Republican,
Indiana, and Representative Fulmer,
Democrat, South Carolina, with a re-
quest from Senate farm leaders that
they introduce it jointly, thus indicat-
ing support from the three great
farming regions-far West, Middle
West and South. Both %Turnell and
Fulmer are members of the House
agricultural committee.
Representative Turnell immediately
expressed his complete approval of
the measure, characterizing it as the
"best farm relief bill pet to appear in
Congress," but until he obtained the
views of his superior on the agricul-
tural committee-Chairman Haugen-
